Custom Vehicle Wraps

Vehicle advertising is one of the most cost effective ways to promote a business nowadays. With graphic images printed on a vinyl and wrapped on a car, it can be rather easy to turn your plain vehicle into an advertising medium. The key is to look for the right company to do the wrapping for you.

You may have been thinking about a car wrap for your vehicle. However, you may not understand what custom vehicle wraps are. To help you understand the term more clearly, here are a few answers to the most common questions about vehicle wraps.

What is a Custom Vehicle Wrap?

To understand what a “car wrap” is, you should know what “wrap” means in general. It is a vinyl decor in this context—specifically a cut vinyl decal. This decal is installed around a vehicle so that it is in a fitting form, following the exact shape of a vehicle.

How is the Wrap Made?

Typically, a vehicle wrap is created in three different stages. First, it is designed according to the requirements of the client. The design involves intricate measurements to come up with the perfect size for the wrap.

The second phase is the lamination stage. It involves the actual production of the wrap. Lamination is done for extra durability.

The final stage involves the actual installation of the car wrap onto the car.

Difference Between a Full Wrap and a Partial Wrap

These two terms are the most common ones you are likely to see when shopping for car wraps. As the name suggests, a full wrap covers the entire body of a vehicle. Any wrap that covers less than this is a partial wrap. Partial wraps are ideal for those who do not have that much budget for a full wrap.

How Long Does A Vehicle Wrap Last?

Vehicle wraps have different life spans. Some last up to three years while others last up to six years. While the life span varies depending on the type of material used, the maintenance and care for the vehicle wrap also affects the total life span.
